The Deuter Kid Comfort III is the luxury choice for the serious hiker/backpacker. Even smaller parents report its weight distributes evenly for an easy, comfortable carry. It's pricey, parents say, but there is nothing this carrier lacks.
Comfort for carried and carrier. The Deuter Kid Comfort III is highly adjustable, which makes it appropriate for parents of varying size. Even smaller/lighter parents say it feels very light to carry thanks to stabilizer straps, contoured shoulder straps and frame and molding that conforms to the anatomy. Kids love the soft pillow, and the breathable fabric keeps them at a comfortable temperature. The child's seat has a padded, five-point harness.ProsHighly adjustable, Comfortable, Accommodates 2-liter hydration unit, Sun canopy, Breathable fabricConsKickstand hard to close once mounted
